Tayloe Piggott Gallery is pleased to present DEAR, Sebastian Blanck's first solo exhibition in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. An opening reception will be held on Friday May 12th from 6-8 pm and the works will remain on view through June 24th, 2017.
Sebastian Blanck's paintings are an expression of the feelings that connect us with one another. By capturing the personalities of loved ones, close friends, and his children at play, he is able to convey a mood with great familiarity giving both an emotional and a visual impact on the viewer. His work challenges the viewer to stand still and lose oneself in the narratives through strong lines, vibrant color and playful composition.
Blanck received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. In the late 1990's, he worked as an assistant for American figurative artist, Alex Katz. Although influenced by Katz, Blanck's work varies greatly due to the intimacy with his subjects and the evidence of his hand in the work. Throughout his career, he has had solo exhibitions in New York, Colorado, Switzerland and Sweden and has been featured in group shows in New York, Chicago and Sweden. In 2001, he was a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. Blanck lives and works in New York City.
